    McCain pretty much MUST win PA to have a shot.

    Without it he might as well pack up and go home.

    So if he doesn't contest it heavily then it's the same as admitting defeat.

    He. Has. No. Choice.

    Of course it's a colossal waste. But that pretty much explains his entire campaign.

      ...playing football and being in the 4th quarter with four minutes in the game to go, and you're down 23-7.

      It's fourth down and 8. Do you go for it instead of punting? Absolutely, it's the best tactical decision. But you are overwhelmingly likely to lose. Winning teams aren't making those kinds of decisions.
